Comment: Anth. Pal. 13.5, attributed to Phalaecus, is dated on metrical grounds to the 3c BCE, although Phalaecus may have been active in the late 4c BCE, too. The poem is a dialogue between an unnamed passer-by and a series of statues representing four brothers, Timodemos (a), Kres (b), Kretheus (c) and Diokles (d), who are successful athletes.
